The silence is making me think I need to cancel my pledge.

It feels like I've pledge for a surprise with this one. I thought more details would come out and they haven't.

If someone wants me to support them with funding, they'd better be clear and actively promoting their product.

The photos a great; the minis are awesome, but they're all general details. Nothing too specific.

Am I being paranoid?

Nope.
If I feel the slightest bit of concern I would bail and I have a few times.
At the end of the day it's your money that's at risk and if the games good you will buy it retail with a chance of saving money compared to the Kickstarter.
But that's just me.

(I got burned with Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster)

Yep, I did too, and this is reminding me a lot of that.

I really want to support, but I'm not seeing enough of the game to feel comfortable.

If no one from the campaign responds, I'm out.

Not as a demand, but I want to see a commitment to clarity. I guess it's funded at this point so earning trust doesn't matter.

I did it, too. I went back to 1 $, because the pledge description says EXACTLY what I feel: I am afraid of the dark (that is the lots of questions about the gameplay) and want to wait what comes out of it.

I really wanted to love this game, but after dealing a lot with everything thats available on the campaign, my guts just told me it's wrong to go all in.

I dropped this one due to a combination of funds and the fact that Deep Madness looks very similar but with more appealing miniatures. It also comes out later which means I may actually be able to back it.

I'm currently in for everything but am seriously considering dropping to $1 (giving the company a chance to sort out reviews etc before the PM) so I totally understand your feelings about this.

It's not alarm bells time but it's unfortunate

I was actually looking through and I see 30 updates from the creator since project launch and 3 responses from the creator in the comments in just the last 22 hours.

I'm not understanding the hesitation and concern about silence from the creator on this one.

Granted, I've not been following very closely, so maybe I'm missing something.

EDIT: Clarity.

To clarify, we're not worried about general creator communication, but about specific issues - he hasn't said a word about the gameplay issue since about two weeks ago when he told us we'd be getting a full rulebook and a detailed game overview. So basically instead of being excited for a game we understand and have faith in, we're confused about a game we know nothing about except that it's gorgeous and rad.

I backed for just the base game. Supposedly they are going top be sending me something (I assume enough to play a mission or tw) in presser top do a review video. The downside is that it looks like they only have the one prototype at this point, so it was never going to be sent out during the campaign.

Lots of cool looking add ons, but they jack the price up very quickly. I will wait and see what happens before going all in, but I feel relatively safe with just a core pledge for now.

Biggest deal for me was the render only miniatures. After the Project ELITE fiasco I'm a bit shy at pulling the trigger on games only showing renders.


Well, technically you can see the minis in all of their videos, so they have to have produced some at the quality level apparent there. The videos aren't high definition or anything, but they have made physical versions.

Well I did Cancel, something just didn't feel right to me. The game does look good though, maybe get it later after BGG reviews.

I hope to have some sort of video review up before the game is released. Dez offered to send me some stuff after he wasn't so busy with things, so we will see.

In the very least, I figured it was worth the investment just for the miniatures. Even if the game doesn't turn out to be that great, those awesome miniatures will be really cool to have on the shelf and will likely see use in other games.

Didn't cancel as the game sounds sound but I did drop my pledge to $1

That'd be great to see - I still suspect this might be worth a punt

Just out of curiosity (and a silly question) but how do you cancel your pledge? Do you contact them and ask to cancel?

Before the campaign ends, you can go in manage your pledge. One of the options is to cancel.

I set it for $1. If they get organized and put out more information, I can swap up to a higher pledge level.

Thanks for that, but now that the campaign has ended, how do I go about changing/cancelling the pledge?

You can't.
Once the money has been taken out of your account it's gone unless they offer refunds.

It depends on how they have things set up. Most companies will allow you to get a full refund within 30 days of the close of the campaign. After that, Kickstarter takes their cut of the money and even if the company does offer a refund, it is usually minus the KS fees after that point.

that is if they even allow refunds to begin with.

So far, I liked everything that I have seen about the game. I will definitely be sticking with it for the long haul. I an trying to get some stuff to play a few demo games and do a video review of here in the coming months. Dez said I would get something eventually, but never specified what or when. Hopefully that should help those who were on the fence decide if the game is for them or not.
